I am currently in a blue mood, and I am sewing a set of blue cushion covers and a blue wallhanging.
I have been cutting and trimming and there were threads and bits of fabric all over the table. Of course I did not have a thread catcher-- hence the mess. So I stopped everything and made myself a thread catcher-- like everyone else, I needed one. So now I have a thread catcher that matches what I am currently sewing and it has been put to use immediately.

I have cut the fabric do do these churn dash blocks for the wallhanging-- they are always a challenge to get the corners just right.
Many years ago, I made this English paper pieced quilt for my son. The whole top was done by hand, but I did get it machine quilted. It had been in the cupboard for ages and I have brought it out again to be used.

The weather has been crazy here. We have had heat above 40 degrees causing bushfires. Now we have a cyclone causing floods in Queensland and bringing rains further down the coast-- hence Sydney is being innundated with rain. It rained all day yesterday and it has been pouring all day today as well. The Pacific Ocean is wild and choppy and it is certainly not a day for the beach.
However, it is a good day for sewing.
